More Carp Action on blue flies

Pictures of a few more blue flies and the fish they've caught. The foam popper got sucked up by a medium sized carp - I was shooting for it's bigger cousin, but the medium sized fish had quicker reaction time.

Mirror Carp
by: Anonymous

The articles and other information I've found point towards this being a subspecies of the common carp - it's called a Mirror Carp. I'm not a professional icthyologist, but I'd say a mirror carp is to the common carp, as any of the various "goldfish" sold in pet stores (Black Moor, Bubble Eye, Red Hump Oranda, Celestial Eye, etc) are to the common goldfish.

I'd be surprised if your waters did not hold mirror carp - just keep fishing!!!

Nice looking carp
by: Levi Cain

Ive looked up this question in the past but don't remember what I had found. But is that a subspecies of carp or an entirely different species of carp other then the Common Carp? I ask because the scales on that carp look like some are missing. But on the carp Ive caught back in Oklahoma growing up their scales are entirely different. I prefer the look of your carp over mine though. I see that type of carp a lot on the covers of european carp mags.
